Clean and Simple Timeless Tulips for PP482

by Joanne James15. March 2020 10:00

Today it's Sunday and time for this week's new challenge over at The Paper Players! I am the hostess this week and I have a clean and simple challenge for you to work with:

      

The daffodils are blooming in my garden and after an extremely wet and windy winter here in the UK, I am so ready for Spring! In addition to that, and the current battoning down the hatches in light of the Corona virus worldwide, I think we could all do with a little colour in our lives, so I hope you will play along with my challenge this week!

Remember in addition to the theme of "Spring Flowers", this week is a Clean-and-Simple (CAS) challenge!  What do we mean by CAS?

  • Minimal layers and embellishments
  • Plenty of open space, aka "white" space
  • Simple and uncluttered

I've made lots of projects using the Timeless Tulips bundle but haven't shared many of any on my blog so thought that today would be a good opportunity to remedy this! I grabbed the fabulous sketch over at CAS(E) This Sketch this week and set to work - take a look:

 

I deliberated for ages over my card, as I so often do when it's clean-and-simple week, but in the end came up with something that was so easy to create. I added a strip of gingham check to the edge of my card, stamped my sentiment in Basic Grey then added a trio of short stemmed tulips stamped in Flirty Flamingo pink, one in each size that is included in the set, and either fussy cut them or used the co-ordinating Tulip Builder punch. I adhered them at the base so that they had a slight lift and added some small epoxy dots to symbolise raindrops to the petals to finish. As easy as that - another #SimpleStamping card this week, we all need some of those!

Just 6 items is all it took to create this sweet tulip card; here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

 

You can see all of my Product and 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

I'm also linking up with the lovely ladies over at Festive Friday where they are celebrating spring - my choices from the inspo list are flowers, green, pastels (and raindrops!)

Before you reach for your ink and papers, check out what our amazing team has created to inspire you this week:

  
 
Here's a quick recap of our challenge rules:
 
1.  Create a new paper project
2.  Upload your creation to your blog with a link back to us and provide a direct link to the post featuring your challenge submission.
3.  Please link your card to no more than four challenges, TOTAL.
4.  Have FUN!

Enjoy your day; it's wet and miserable here today and I was hoping to hibernate to my craft room, but against all my better judgements I might have to venture out to the supermarket, since all of the panic buying has resulted in my regular weekly shop being delivered minus much of what I ordered so I'm not quite sure how I am going to feed the James family this week! I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!
